4 Tips to Improve Condo and Apartment Security Systems

Security is an important concern when you move into any new condo or apartment. Sevan Locks & Doors located in Downtown Seattle, WA offers great security systems and tips. 

Property Management For Quality Protection

Maintaining condo and apartment complexes’ security is so important. With these buildings, there is so much foot traffic that keeping residents safe is key. Using various security systems that are customized to your specific building needs will keep them safe. 

Customize For Optimal Security Safety

The locksmith experts at Sevan Locks and Doors can help with coming up with personalized building systems to keep residents safe. There are a few options that you can use. 

  • Telephone Entry Systems 

These types of systems allow those who live in the condos or apartments to see who is visiting them or trying to gain access to the complexes. They allow the tenants to open the doors from anywhere with the use of their phones. 

  • Lever Guards

People being able to pry open doors or damage door handles to gain access to buildings is a top issue with apartment facilities and condominiums. Our professional locksmiths can install lever guards on all exterior doors around the building. Lever guards are meant to prevent people from being able to pry doors open by breaking the handles or wrenching open the side of the doors. 

  • Keycard Controls

Keycard access control systems are common in condo security setups. They allow residents to get into different parts of the building. You can use passwords, pins, key fobs, or a combination. It all depends on who will have access to the different areas of your building. 

  • Astragals For Security Doors

Astragals are heavy-duty latch protectors for doors that prevent someone from breaking into your buildings. They are custom-made to fit your specific doors and can be made to fit your aesthetic. Security door astragals are best if they are made of stainless steel or a silver hammered finish. You have the option of single or full length. With Single astragals, you are just protecting the knobs of your doors and the deadbolts. With the full length, you are protecting the entire door. 

These are some of the best ways that you can up your security for a condo or apartment complex

Surveillance Is Essential

If you own an apartment complex or a Condo complex then you may want to keep an eye on what is happening in common areas like lobbies, elevators, stairwells, and hallways. Having a security camera system in place allows you to monitor from your phone remotely. 

As a manager or owner of buildings, you must do what you can to keep your property and tenants safe. Installing security cameras or a closed circuit television (CCTV) system can give you as well as your residents peace of mind. 

Keep It Under Lock And Key

Having policies in place that ensure the safety of residents and visitors is something that landlords should have in place This includes a policy of not sharing keys with anyone. If a person does not reside in the building then they should not. have a key. 

To avoid any potential copying of main entrance keys installing a keycard access system may be your best option. Key fobs can not be duplicated and cost more to replace if they are lost. Sevan Locks And Doors has many options available if you are looking for smart lock options as well. 

If All Else Fails: Integrate

Integration systems are an all-in-one security option. If you want to be able to have security cameras, key fobs, and other security measures be able to function as one unit then integration is your answer. You can have your main entrance keys work simultaneously with your security cameras so that everything is in sync and you can see who is coming and going and when.

This can be beneficial if something happens within one of your condo or apartment buildings and you need to pinpoint what happened and when.
